Norwegian Government Standard Agreements

We recommend the use of Norwegian Government Standard Agreements (SSA) for a common base between customer and the supplier. They are available in different versions for the development, maintenance and consulting services.

Assistance Agreements (SSA-B and SSA-B single)

Assistance agreements are intended for the purchase of consultancy services under the direction of the customer. Consultant's responsibility is, within the agreed time and price, limited to provide technical assistance in activities governed by the customer.


Operating Agreement (SSA-D)

The outsourcing agreement used for purchase of standardized operating services from an external operations service provider. Operations are characterized by an agreement valid for several years, and the agreement manages that changes are processed in an orderly manner throughout the contract period.


Purchase Agreement (SSA-K)

The purchase agreement shall be primarily used for the purchase of standard equipment and software, or a mix of off-the-shelf products that the supplier has put together to suit customer needs.


Research and Development Agreement (SSA-O)

The agreement is for a mission that at announcement is clearly described by the customer where the consultant gets an independent responsibility to deliver a finished product at the agreed time and price.


Development and Customization Agreement (SSA-T)

Development and Customization Agreement shall be used in cases where there is a need to specifically plan the delivery closer. The agreement thus facilitates close cooperation between customer and supplier. If necessary, for buying off-the-shelf products, the purchase agreement (SSA-K) can be used instead.


Maintenance Agreement (SSA-V)

Maintenance Agreement applies to the purchase of maintenance and certain management services for equipment and programs. Maintenance Agreement can be used for solutions that are bought over both SSA-K, SSA-T and SSA-S.
